Yes, you're right. I'm screwed. It turns out my wheels are actually R540's not R535's. I have a brand new pair of R535's in my closet (brand new in plastic, never used) and the spokes from the 535's don't fit the R540's.
I'm ordering some R540 spokes from my LBS, who made it clear they had better things to do, so I don't expect them to arrive quickly.
Furthermore, everyone I speak to says these wheels are not for me. I'm 220 lbs, and these wheels are supposedly not for anyone over 175.
Anyone wanna buy a brand new pair of Shimano R535 wheels?
